- Mealafist are red scaled demonic beings of strange design. A pair of fanged
wings extend from their hindquarters, accompanied by a long tail that ends
in a leaf shaped barb. From their stomach area extends a flexible neck to
which their head is attached. Their face is faceted with many red-slitted
eyes which allow it to see in all directions. Two elongated and gaping
mouths are present, opening slightly to either side of its front. Two
horns of black bone protrude straight from the back of its skull. Above
its stomach, the Mealafist possesses from its shoulders a pair of long,
gangly arms which hang past their feet when relaxing in flight. The
Mealafist's legs extend as one would expect from just below its hindquarters
and end in mostly inadequate, small, clawed feet. Mealafist prefer to
fly about and avoid confronting creatures where they must be on foot.
Mealafist can telepathically communicate with any
creature that has a language. Their mouths can only vocalize whimpering and
a choking gargle of sound.

laborers of the Incasos society.
Mealafist are only slightly more cunning than
animals and while easily provoked into hostile action, they are completely
subservient to all higher ranking Incasos. Mealafist are often tortured and
abused by the volatile Infaeludor and Taturak.
- Mealafist which do well in combat or at their duty of caring for the Blight
may be rewarded upon their death with ascension into the form of an Infaeludor.

know how to promote itself even it understood that promotion was a possibility.
A slain Mealafist rises again from the Blight at the dawn of the next day.
